Résumé

This paper proposes the experimental and theoretical study of nonlinear heat transport processes generated by large amplitude acoustic oscillations at the ends of a stack of plates in the presence of a temperature gradient. These processes are notably involved in the operation of thermoacoustic engines. The measurement method, a time-resolved and full-field digital holography interferometry technique, enables to measure the density fluctuations from the optical phase difference between two laser beams. This technique is applied to the analysis of density fluctuations in the vicinity of a stack submitted to a temperature gradient, firstly for the case of (uncontrolled) self-sustained acoustic oscillations generated spontaneously in a standing wave thermoacoustic prime mover, and secondly for the case of an assigned acoustic field whose amplitude is controlled by an external sound source. A theoretical model describing the advective heat transport by sound at the ends of the heated stack is also presented, and numerical simulations are then carried out. The comparison between experimental data and numerical simulations is provided for several stack positions, several sound pressure levels, and several amounts of heat supplied to the stack, and the results show good agreement between the experiments and the model.
